Welcome to the launch of my new blog, Heart Undivided. It’s been a few years since the days of Time Out when I longed for a moment to call my own. When the hours were filled with diapers, laundry, appointments, ballgames, homework, and the constant running, running, running. Oh the sweet chaos of that time! How I cherish the memories!
I look back with awe at how God worked through those years when the girls were little—comforting, challenging, growing me. Through all the mistakes, all the bumbling around as wife and mother, I am filled with wonder knowing my Heavenly Father never quit on me. That He actually used me to accomplish His purposes. There’s only one way to describe it.
This is a new season of life. Roy and I praise God for His faithfulness as we celebrate our 30th anniversary this year. To those who watched our girls grow up through Time Out, here’s a quick update:
Laura and Mary are through college and married with homes of their own. They gave us our first “sons,” Charlie and Matt. They are working hard and serving our Lord with abandon. Little Katie is a rising sophomore in college, pursuing God’s plan for her life. Those early prayers continue to be answered!
And three months ago, Laura and Charlie presented us with our first grandson, Jack. Yes, the little girl who put her sister’s hermit crab in the washing machine now has her own little one. I am mesmerized just watching them together.
Even though much has changed, certain things never will. I am still called to prayer—constantly. My roles as wife, mother, grammy, daughter and friend may be different, but God still calls in these areas.
And this I know—God’s women need each other. We are in this journey together, to grow, support and inspire.
Through Heart Undivided, I hope to do just that—share, encourage, and maybe start a conversation or two. So let’s continue walking together in this adventure called life…remembering the foundation of it all…

Loved reading your blog. I’m not rushing our lives but I look forward to when the boys grow up and to see what God has in store for them. I pray all the time that they will continue to keep The Lord in their lives.
Thanks, Christine! It seems that the praying is a life-long commitment. But what a privilege. Your boys are well-grounded in what it means to be Christ-followers–they have great examples in their parents!
